  • Cut out the cake and the candles.
  • Fold your candles and cake according to the directions .
  • Paint and/or decorate the candles and cake. Allow to dry. Fold and the candles and cake again as the paint and glitter makes the paper a bit stiff.

  • Simple wave shapes in different colours decorate but do not detract from the inside surprise
